The Education MEC's spokesperson Jessica Shelver: "We have seen high rates of absenteeism by learners and some educators have also been unable to access their schools. Action of this nature is completely unacceptable. It is having a negative impact on the education of our learners, who are writing exams and assessments at this critical time of year."
